Jonathan Goulet vs Tamdan McCrory UFC 97 fight possible for April 18
 
Quote:

Jonathan Goulet has been approached about competing against Tamdan McCrory in front of his hometown fans at UFC 97 on April 18 from The Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada according to Sherdog.com.

The “Road Warrior,” however, must first receive medical clearance before the welterweight tilt is finalized. He was suspended after getting knocked silly by Mike Swick at UFC Fight Night 16: “Fights for the Troops” in his most recent outing on December 10.

Prior to the loss, the Canadian was riding back-to-back wins, finishing Kuniyoshi Hironaka via technical knockout of at UFC 83: “Serra vs. St. Pierre,” which earned “Fight of the Night” honors.

Goulet was supposed to face the previously undefeated Paul Kelly at UFC 85 before pulling out because of undisclosed health concerns.

McCrory — a 20-something college student at The State University of New York at Cortland (SUNY Cortland) who also moonlights as a full-time fighter — was submitted by Brazilian jiu-jitsu specialist Dustin Hazelett at UFC 91: “Couture vs. Lesnar” on November 15.

He is already an Octagon veteran with four fights under his belt.

“The Barncat” defeated Luke Cummo via unanimous decision at UFC 87: “Seek and Destroy” and tapped Pete Spratt in his promotional debut at UFC Fight Night 10 in June 2007.

It’s safe to say that both fighters have a lot on the line and need to win to stay afloat in the crowded UFC 170-pound division.

UFC 97 will likely feature middleweight champion Anderson Silva, defending his 185-pound strap against Thales Leites. Hometown hero and welterweight golden boy, Georges St. Pierre, could also be booked for the card if he escapes his fight against BJ Penn later this month injury-free.

I see the barncat getting back to winning ways in this one.

Does anyone else really think that if GSP does win that he will comeout of it unscaved and be able to fight as early as UFC 97? I hope so, but I certainly have some doubts.

Goulet's getting knocked out. By the weediest guy in his division. I can say this with such confidence as well.

I don't think this is an easy win for Tamdan because his striking isn't great.

He should win but this could be a bit tougher then expected.

Goulet is a solid fighter, his chin just sucks, a lot.

Idk his striking looked really good vs Hazelett.

It looked ok but I didn't see anything better then an average striker.

He threw a lot of good combos, and a very hard leg kick. He looked better versus Haz on the feet than Koscheck did, that's for damn sure. Plus, Goulet sucks.

I'm liking this fight, should be exciting. Could go either way, i got Goulet taking it.
